|ERIC ED318926: Elaboration of Tinto's Model of College Student Departure: A Qualitative Study of Freshman Experiences. - ERIC|
Research has confirmed the usefulness of Tinto's model in predicting undergraduate student withdrawal from college and in conceptualizing and explaining the process of student attrition. Tinto proposed that college students are more likely to withdraw if they are insufficiently integrated or if they maintain values sufficiently different from the values of the college they are attending. This study was conducted to further explore the utility of Tinto's model and to investigate the nature of the...

This paper outlines basic issues and concerns in the planning and development of this type of program. Before starting a WO program, it is essential to develop a coherent set of goals. These include general program goals, personal growth goals, social skills goals, and goals related to the environment or campus and academic life...

|ERIC ED371395: What Can We Reasonably Expect at the End of Freshman Composition? - ERIC|
What the instructor of freshman composition might reasonably hope for at the end of the semester is that his or her students have advanced sufficiently in their self-critical attitudes so as to approach future writing challenges with some sense of hope. To borrow Russell A. Hunt's metaphor, freshmen might at least learn to strive toward opening the "door of understanding" even if the instructor will not witness their flinging the door wide open and walking through...

Three undergraduate degrees (in Accounting, Business Studies and Commerce), developed at different times by different departments at Napier Polytechnic in Scotland, introduced a common first year curriculum in 1987-88. For some time the Polytechnic had recognized the need to increase flexibility between courses and to provide students with the maximum number of choices and progression routes, and the initial proposal to develop a common first year was submitted for discussion in September 1985...

|ERIC ED214187: Readers in the Composition Course: Why They Fail, How We Can Make Them Work. - ERIC|
The effectiveness of the freshman composition "reader" as a source of prose models for student essays is questionable because their often long and complicated rhetorical strategies and ideas can intimidate the writers. The narrow expository patterns offered in the readers can also reduce essay writing to a matter of copying a prescribed organizational pattern, drawing attention away from consideration of persona, audience, and purpose, thus restricting the student's inventiveness...

Subjects, 22 college freshmen enrolled in two core composition courses, were audiotaped as they planned course papers with a peer. Students formed pairs each consisting of a "writer" and a "partner" (supporter). The partner asked questions and encouraged the writer to develop his or her plan, aided by a set of rhetorical prompts...

All written material done outside of class was collected and each writer was interviewed at least once per term. A system of classification was then applied to the writing, consisting of seven items: invention, audience, voice, intention, style, arrangement and revision...

Locus of control has most frequently been measured using Internal versus External measures. Some researchers have suggested that the External category should be broken down into two subcategories of powerful others and chance. In much previous research, Internality has been found to be related to positive adjustment. This may have implications for women and minorities, both of whom are more frequently found to attribute control to external factors...

Studying the life of Langston Hughes in the context of how to teach freshman composition can shed light on two sometimes conflicting pedagogies, the expressivist and the social-constructionist. A discouraging period of fierce criticism, illness, depression, and financial woes coincided with Hughes' 39th birthday, which his biographer Arnold Rampersad described as a "season of humiliation and dispossession." Teachers of composition should look to Hughes's experience of tension and frustration as ...
